Campylobacter jejuni/C. coli Chromogenic Detection System

Product Description:

R&F® Campylobacter jejuni/C. coli monocytogenes Chromogenic Detection Kit

A Selective/Differential Chromogenic Plating Medium For Identifying Campylobacter jejuni/C. coli. Presumptively positive colonies of Campylobacter jejuni/C. coli appear as dark salmon flat to convex colonies, 1.0-2.0 mm in diameter with and without a clear ring after 48 hours at 41-42 degrees C under microaerophilic conditions.

Kit includes 250g Bottle of Powder & Full Supplement Box – Makes 250-260 Plates

Key Advantages:

  • Novel chromogenic plating medium for isolating Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli 
  • Uses a unique chromogenic substrate that can produce a water insoluble chromogen (color remains within the colony) under microaerophilic conditions 
  • Detection of the C-2 esterase enzyme produced by Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli but not Campylobacter lari 
  • Selectivity of medium and incubation conditions inhibits the growth of most Enterics and other closely related Gram negative bacteria 
  • University of Guelph studies showed 98% exclusivity and 100% inclusivity (156 microbial strains tested) • Plates may be examined after 24h for C.jejuni/C.coli
